From California, Keisean Lucier-South is a fantastic pass-rusher who gets the job done with speed and explosiveness.
The 6'5", 225-pounder routinely jumps on top of offensive tackles with a quick first step, plus he can bend well. However, more will be needed by the 5-star prospect to have success in college. He has to show this summer that he has the strength to execute a power move or two versus top-tier offensive linemen.
If not, then he may indeed just be a one-trick pony as a speed-rusher. Schools such as UCLA, Notre Dame and Michigan are in the hunt, per 247Sports.
Lucier-South told the following to Chris Swanson of USCFootball.com (subscription required) on May 29: "Honestly, UCLA is my favorite school. I've been talking to them and seeing them a lot lately. They're really looking at me a lot."
